Paradise and attention to detail
What should I say about the pimalai?
From moment one I knew we were about to head to an amazing place. The transport itself to the resort was a fantastic trip on its own especially on the speedboat bit,the transport provided is pretty expensive but it was also a long journey and trust me it was worth every single penny!!!!!!
The Pimalai was secluded and I've never seen a resort so well blend in with nature!!!!!! We were very lucky so me and my two friends were upgraded to a sea view suite,the room was very spacious,even for 3 and we also had an oversized bathroom with a little courtyard where I had my daily showers,overlooking the sky and the stars:))))
The staff was simply AMAZING,they made us feel very special and welcome every single second of our stay and the highest praises go to BOW,the head receptionist.
It's ten years I work for the major uk airline as cabin staff and I know more than one thing about customer service if you allow me,BOW went the extra mile daily,she is the biggest assett at the Pimalai and I genuinely hope she will progress in her career swiflty,she truly deserves it!!!!!
We also got the chance to meet the general manager Frank which was very pleasant and down to earth. Unfortunately I did not get the chance to sample the Pimalai cuisine a part from breakfast(which needless to say was outstanding) and as my friends were on a tight budget we opted for the why not bar but especially the same same but different which are next door from the resort.
Overall I cannot comment the Pimalai enough,wonderful,intimate,luxurious and excellent value for money during the low season,by the way we had a great weather!!!!!
Back in London now and my and my friends really miss the fantastic time we had in koh lanta but especially at the pimalai. I don't tend to return to the same places but this is the first time I seriously consider it,I simply fell in love with the place and really hope that If I return I will be greeted once again by those AMAZING and genuine smiles!!!
Come over this is the place to be!!!!
